If the season ended before Friday night’s first pitch, both the Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox would be in the playoffs. But there’s still a lot of baseball left, including a huge series between the Blue Jays and Red Sox this weekend in Toronto.

The Red Sox entered Friday’s contest one game clear of the Blue Jays in the American League East, while Toronto currently holds the top wild-card spot.

Hear NESN’s Dave O’Brien and Steve Lyons preview the big series in the video from “Red Sox Gameday Live” above.
